Patch 10.3 - New event, PvP marks changes, changes to knowledge slots and other fixes

Recommended Posts

  • OW speeds slightly re balanced

I really hope that travel OS speeds increased and Trader NPCs or fleets are little slower now. Anyone testing this?

why???

 

Because the devs actually listen to the community and know the average player should enjoy the game even when grinding and sail the ships he wants to sail. Gtfo with your wows tier system.

  • Knowledge slots previous ships unlock requirements removed from the game, ships still have knowledge slots and require xp on this ship, but don't have pre-requisites

You all are lazy <_<

This was a great feature...

Yeah it was a choice people could grind and get the slots eventually or swim with only 2.

 

Books in this game are super op. But grinding slots was super slow, so it was balanced. Now devs will nerf all the skillbooks sooner or later, cause everyone will have 5 slot ships.

This is just bad game design.

Please, define great?

It was hugely unpopular, forced people to spend countless hours in ships they didn't even like and the devs removed it because they also felt it was wrong.

It was a counter balance to OP books.

Thats something i also dont understand i mean the system had the mistake that you needed to grind other ships then you sailed but that was all it wasnt that bad.

Cause with the math you would hit RA going up one tree only before you got to the second slot of the Connie.  That is if you did't try to go up the other SOL tree too.  You would max out in the game before you even got into the 4th rates.  Which is way to much grinding.  I should not have to master some ships I don't want to be in to master one I do.

You didn't have to master any ship at all. You would just have 2 skillbooks, not 5. It was a choice do you want to grind and have best stuff, or will you settle up for just 2 slots.

Now everyone will swim same ships with same upgrades. This is just sad and bad. And I'm saying it as a guy who had everything year ago and just left this game, cause i got bored of having 1st rate in every port i wanted to have.

Still in the low level ships. I think it's a good idea for balance, and basic duels with ship that we never see because they are "not good". If you want to see everyone sailing renommee, I think you're right ;)

good to have 80 pvp marks. so now if i want to earn anything without trading i should go kill stupid npc's on missions. It looks like u want to see the back of this last few thousands peoples still playng. Making changes that makes dozen hours wasted. Converting 1:2 when yesterday value was more like 1:30. Like slap in the face. Now i know why last 2 days some russian (coincidence ofc) players were gladly trading pvp marks for anything.

sorry jeheil.  but that system had to go 

Its all good man, I actually had quite a bit of fun raising hostility in my little shi#$ers. which is the best way to level up rather than just grind. Always gotta expect the balancing...so I am chill, but literally when the update message came up, I said in TS to my they will be dropping ship grind now I am like 3 missions away....so it was sorta funny.

And what about the ridiculous 'Conquest Mark' system? 

At least with the PVP Marks you needed to 'work' for them

Conquest Marks should be scrapped as well.

So 4 slot for free and the 5th(if u really want it) u have to unlock other ships 5th too

One small beg for your next patch to add some cream to this cherry of a 6meg patch....is please scale the loot on ships, so if you do sink an AI Santi (I know dirty PvE) you get perhaps more than 11 bits of rum
